C3 Positive/Negative Space

This exercise in Positive/Negative Space deals with the integration of two individual objects and the creation of a larger idea as a result.

Using very simple silhouettes and positive/negative space, create a fusion between a mammal and its ___________ (fill in the blank as to what the other half of the pairing is: Joy? Food? Habitat? Offspring? Friend? Prey?). One silhouette must be a positive shape and the other a negative shape.

Optional: Save your creative results and revisit after completing the next exercise and video which includes notan. What adjustments would you make? None? A little? A lot? Do these changes change the meaning?
